Tropical Bird




Here is one of my latest artworks called Tropical Bird. It was influenced by my upcoming trip to Hawaii in two weeks. Did I mention that I am pretty excited about this trip?! I need a vacation for sure!

I just love how travel really influences an artist and their artwork. I find that whenever I go anywhere (even just to another state!) I am somehow inspired. Where is the most inspiring place you have ever gone?

My most inspiring place would have to be Pella, Iowa.
I know it sounds crazy but it is a beautiful town with wonderful old buildings. We stayed with friends outside of town and had a blast chasing fireflies and hiking through oat fields to ride horses at the neighbors. We spent July 4th watching the fireworks explode from other nearby farms...an amazing place! By far a place I want to return to with my paints and sketchbook! Have a FANTASTIC time in Hawaii!! Say hi to the plumeria for me!! ") HAppy summer!
